Paul Staehlea and his 3 year old son Pierre made it home safely to Kentucky after a police bulletin reported missing last week, TMZ has learned.
‘The 90 Day Fiancé’ star tells TMZ… he was driving back to the Louisville area on Saturday with Pierre, and the two met Paul’s parents in a park.
Paul said he handed Pierre over to his parents because he didn’t want to deal with all the drama surrounding child protection.
He says he needs more time to process the legal situation engulfing him, his ex-wife Karine Martins and their 2 young children, Ethan and Pierre.
After they were reported missing, Paul denied kidnapping Pierre and went on the run with him, insisting they had been on a long work trip together since early June.
Paul’s parents contacted CPS officials, who picked up Pierre and reunited him with 1-year-old Ethan in foster care.
As we reported, Paul and Karine lost custody of their children to CPS after videos surfaced of the couple’s abusive relationship dating back to 2010, when they appeared on the show.
Paul’s parents are now demanding full custody of the children and plan to fight it out with authorities in family court.
A representative of the Louisville Police Department confirmed to TMZ… Pierre had been located and is safe, and the missing person’s report was closed on Sunday.
